How to Alter Home To Benefit Cockroach Control


 
Health,Home Improvement,Family & Parenting
When trying to combat any pest, the primary and first step that needs to be taken is to disrupt their environment. With that in mind, be sure that the reason any pest enters your home is in order to feed or drink, with food being the No. 1 reason

Since pests can go outside and get water, and then come back inside again, sometimes that's not as significant as food, but eliminating water as a source does help to cut back on pests in general, and roaches in particular. But that only helps if you minimize or eliminate their food source, as they can always find water if they need it, and so the home offering the most food will be their main choice to dine at.So there are two major things to consider in relationship to organic roach control, and they are access to the home and food attractants. Take care of both and you're unlikely to ever have a roach problem in your home.Let's look at dealing with the food problem that can lure roaches into your home.

Most of the reason for discovering what a certain roach species is is for the purpose of knowing how best to get rid of it; sometimes through using the correct attractant for a specific roach species.

For example, some roach types prefer citrus as their main food source, while others actually like to munch on your clothes. And of course there are those that for the most part, don't care what it is they eat as long as it's food.

Elimination of Water Sources

Water is the most important factor in cockroach survival. German cockroaches can survive only 12 days with food but no water. However, if only water is present with no food, cockroaches can survive for about 42 days. Cockroaches often come indoors during periods of drought because they are looking for moisture. Eliminate water sources by doing the following:

Repair plumbing leaks by tightening connections or patching leaky pipes, especially in kitchen and bathroom areas.

Do not let water stand in sinks for long periods of time.

Do not overwater indoor plants because accumulated water will be available to cockroaches.

Empty pans under refrigerators used to catch water from condensation.

Be aware that pet drinking dishes, aquaria and pipe condensation (under sinks, in wall voids) can also be sources of moisture.

Eliminate places outside where water can collect, such as cans, tires and tree holes.

Elimination of Food Sources

Cockroaches do not need large amounts of food to survive, especially in the presence of water, but availability of food can cause populations to increase rapidly. Furthermore, food sources compete with cockroach baits, decreasing their effectiveness. Elimination of food sources includes:

Store and dispose of garbage properly. The highest concentration of cockroaches in a home is usually around the garbage can and around the refrigerator.

Seal garbage can lids to prevent cockroaches from accessing food sources. Also, keep garbage areas clean by wiping frequently.

Dump sink strainers frequently to prevent food buildup.

Wipe off counters tops often.

Wash dishes immediately after use. Dishes left unwashed are a major source of food for a kitchen infestation.

Keep kitchen appliances such as toasters, toaster ovens, microwaves, stoves, ovens, and refrigerators free of crumbs and other food debris. In addition, clean the areas around these appliances.

Reseal all food after opening, place in a tightly sealed container or store in the refrigerator.

Seal pet food tightly. Do not leave food and water out all the time.

Regularly vacuum or sweep under and around furniture where people eat, such as the dining room table. Vacuuming can also remove cockroach egg cases that will not be killed by insecticides. Remember to promptly dispose of the vacuum cleaner bag in an outdoor container.

Depending on the pest control methods used to try to rid yourself of the roaches, they may not be effective if you're not placing them where the roaches are and based upon what thy prefer to feast on.
